Cape May is a magical place in fall. Birds pour south along the east coast, and many of them end up at the bottom of New Jersey. The diversity of habitats means that there's always birds to look at, whether it's songbird migrants, shorebirds, saltmarsh specialties, ducks, arriving seabirds, or the incredible raptor migration. This is an easy trip, staying at one hotel the whole time and enjoying Cape May’s charming restaurants in addition to its mouthwatering birding.
